The Carvel's - South Bristol, Maine

It isn't hard to understand why people vacation in Maine.  After all, it's "the way life should be."  I am always amazed by the treasures hidden down the many side roads; treasures that I would never get the chance to see if I weren't doing this fabulous photography job of mine.  This session was a last minute adventure the Carvel's added to their to-do list during their stay in South Bristol.  I am so glad I was available to meet with them at this very special beach.  Take a look, and you'll know what I mean.

While mom was getting ready we took a few shots of the kids in the grass at their rental before we headed to the beach.  Are they not the cutest!!

The girls kept informing me that they only had a certain number of smiles before they ran out!  So sweet!

The hugging pose was their idea.

There's just something about this photo that I adore, closed eyes and all.  Even though I only met Ava that day, I feel like this image contains a lot of her personality, plus I love the fact that she is clinging to her father's shirt, her mom just behind her holding the baby, and her sister just to the bottom left of the photo.  Sigh!

Catherine loved collecting sea glass with Ava.  I just love this shot!  She kept inspecting all her found treasures, and at the end of our time on the beach, I was impressed by all the different colors she found.

And here is baby Drew.  He was such a good trouper!!

Thank you so much for such a fun time, and especially for allowing me to capture some memories of your trip, which I know will bloom into lasting treasures for many years to come.  Stay tuned, there are many more photos!

Georgetown, Maine Family Portrait Session

One of the perks of being a photographer is having the privilege of meeting some of the nicest people in the most beautiful locations.  Driving down the coast on a road I have never been on where eventually I end up in the cutest little cluster of homes along the shoreline, is such a treasure.  The lighting, people, location - all perfection.  Thank you Mary and Steve for entrusting me with capturing some of the memories of your vacation in Maine.  It is always an honor to be given such opportunities.  Need I say more!

Sometimes the moment between "Okay, look at the camera" is the best time to click the shutter button!
